We were looking for a place to eat in downtown Medford and saw this restaurant as we drove by. We stopped and we are very glad that we did. We were met at the door by a co-owner and shown to our table where Nicole did a great job of waiting on us. It was nice to find a place... More

I did not expect such a high level of food given the location in downtown Medford and the rather old fashioned and strange decor. However our salad started things off--- mixed greens with pea shoots and very lovely house dressing. The the mushroom pasta was superb... great filling, cooked perfectly.. delicious! The service was attentive without being intrusive. I would... More

Food took ages even though we were almost the only diners - when it came it was horrible. Would not go back - no atmosphere. Only saving grace was the server who was lovely.

Enjoyed the food and ambience, especially Rod Petrone's guitar playing of both classical and Italian songs. The restaurant was a little challenged the evening we were there due to a large party and unexpected guests, but they worked well with the challenge and provided excellent food. The menu was excellent and had a good variety of Italian offerings and the... More

This little gem is a wonderful thing to know about when you are in Medford, Oregon. Their fresh, organic salads are so crisp and crunchy; the basil vinaigrette is amazing. The Spanish paella was delicious; it's the first time I ever had it with the different meats cut into bite-size pieces. That makes it really easy to eat. Their lunch... More

It's the Capers lunch buffet that we like best...as of October 2016 the price is $9.50 (go ahead, try and find this quality at this price anywhere), and the food is terrific! The spices on the pork loin were addictive...a tasty fruit salad and fresh green salad with lots of fixings and 3 home made dressings...the casserole was in a... More

I'm pleased to have "discovered" a restaurant in downtown Medford that supports healthy, organic fare sourced from local farmers. Their lunch buffet is fabulous and I plan on trying dinner there soon. The head chef (and part owner), Mike, is very personable and truly believes in the value of what he offers, presenting with skill and good taste. Try it... More
